i love fall

where to begin??

these past couple weeks have been really good. i've been able to hang out with friends i havent really been able to this semester much, and make new friends. and it has been good. i've been happy. which is good, because alot of this semester has been a state of contentment (at best).

tonight and the past couple nights i've kinda been in a slump again, but im trying to stay out of it and keep spirits high. i've been letting something bother me that i shouldnt be letting bother me. i just need to remind myself to love life and love god.

besides that though, tonight was halloween!! it was pretty fun. i got to watch most of the rocky horror picture show. haha, funny times. then i met some friends for the Seminoles stomp; which was AWESOME! derek was the president, so he was leading the pledges, and he was so fun to watch, and all the pledge boys were fun and got into it. it was enjoyable. then after that some of us went and threw fruit loops all over a friends front yarn. haha. that was funny. now im home ready to start tomorrow. tomorrow some friends are going to amber's house to hang out and play wii and maybe 4-wheel and eat dinner and star gaze and fun stuff like that. im excited! it should be a good weekend :-)

school is....well, school. going way to fast for my taste...but, oh well. its crazy how you want school to speed by before you graduate highschool...and now that college is here, i want it to slow down...but i think the slowing down part is mainly for the social side of college...

OH! we had a local piper tour thursday. that went really well!! such a good first day tour, and we had some awesome kids and good good stuff happen at shows. tuesday we leave for our week of fall tour, which is so much school and stuff to miss...BUT it should be a good tour. we are going to memphis and nashville and should be fun!

it feels like i had more i wanted to write....
like, about the weather and how i LOVE everything about fall!!!!

but im not sure ;-)

Psalm 37:3-7

"Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes."

Mary put this at the bottom of her email she sent me. I looked it up. I was awed at God.

I have stayed in contact with Mary while she has been in India, and even from there she has been an inspiration and an amazing friend that I love dearly. So she knows about the things going on in my life, and knows what I need to hear. But this verse is EXACTLY what has been on my heart a lot lately and is what I have been praying for strength to be able to do, and reminding myself throughout the day to try and live.

God is good.

Thank you Mary, and thank you God.

why do people change?

why cant people keep the same great qualities they have at one time possessed...i know that changing is some areas is good and necessary, and that life experiences shape us and we are constantly being molded...but why cant some of our pieces harden and stay as they are? especially when some of those pieces were better before than they are now...

friends are changing, i am changing, life is changing...sometimes its good; but other times i would just like it to stop
